    Prepositions: "For / on"

    This morning I've thought I have forgotten (are these tenses used correctly?) my mobile phone at home, but I was wrong, I had it my pocket so I said to my friend:"It's ok, I have it with / on me".
    Which is the correct prepostion in this context?
    Thank you in advance!

    Either one is OK.

    'This morning I've I thought I had left my mobile phone at home'.

    'This morning I've I thought I had forgotten...'

    Thank you for your answer. So even if it was still morning when I said this sentence, it's better to use the Past Tense "I thought"?
